My Grandmother An Armenian-Turkish Memoir

by Fethiye Cetin

My Grandmother An Armenian-Turkish Memoir Synopsis

As a child in Turkey, Fethiye Cetin knew her grandmother as a happy and well respected Muslim housewife. Decades later, her grandmother revealed the truth: she was by birth a Christian Armenian, and most of the men in the village where she grew up were slaughtered in 1915. In this heartwrenching memoir, Cetin tells a powerful story that breaks the silence surrounding the Armenian genocide.
